A 20 kg bag of Keraquick white should be mixed with about 5 litres of water. Alternatively mix a 20 kg bag of grey or white with 6 kg of Latex Plus. Pour clean water (or liquid) into a clean mixing bucket. Add Keraquick powder and mechanically stir until a homogenous, lump-free paste is achieved. Allow the mix to stand for 2 minutes then briefly stir again. Use the mix within 30 minutes of preparation. Apply the prepared Keraquick to the substrate with a notched trowel to a maximum of 10 mm thick. To achieve good adhesion to the substrate, first apply a skim coat of adhesive over the substrate using the flat edge of the trowel followed by combing through with the notched edge of the trowel to the required thickness. Ensure that a trowel with a notch size and profile appropriate to the size of tile is used. For demanding applications such as exterior tiling subject to freezing, swimming pools or water feature installations, heavy duty areas, floor tiling to be ground in situ, when installing tiles with deep recesses or lugs on the rear and for fixing large format tiles (> 300 x 300 mm), the adhesive should also be applied to the rear of the tile (back buttering).
